britain is an important export market to the rest of europe. europe is teetering on recession right now anyway. the central bank is not doing anything about it. my feeling is it could tip it into recession, the whole continent. longer-term, europe could be better off with britain leaving but in a short-term we have to remember europe is our largest export market which is why folks like the ford motor company are so upset. being inside the eu is not good for britain. how do they get out? rob: bob shanks saying the no deal and brexit would be catastrophic for the auto industry and ford's manufacturing operation in the country and that is why we are talking about this. in the united states, why do we care? with the eu is doing with the uk? it could have implications on the entire world.
>> ford has a conflict of interest was when we talk about changing the trade regime. britain leaving the eu, established players have to rearrange their investments. the automakers were against nafta in the beginning because they established themselves in canada and mexico to take advantage of tariff protection. when you talk about change that is what you get from the ford motor company. and britain is better off outside the eu long-term. rob: teresa may holding onto power, the new plan in 70 days to do it. this is from forbes, china is losing the trade war in nearly every way, big conflict between the us and china and this forbes article highlights reasons china
is struggling. the stock market is down, gdp export import data all negative. the president is winning the game. >> he is winning in some measure. the trade war is not the only reason at all china has economic difficulties but the bottom line is china get along by the government cheating on wto rules and taking advantage of other countries. they are like the kid in the class who is always reading other people's desks. they are worse than that. they are the sopranos. that disturbed me about these negotiations. and the harvest organs and transplant them to communist party officials, it is like a concentration camp. we are dealing with a 1930s fascist regime. the idea we can negotiate with these people and get them to abide by free-market rules and have free trade with them is silly.

brigadier general anthony tata, will there be an attempt to deceive? they dig anything out of this? >> the wheels of justice are grinding slowly but they are grinding. the judge made an amazing decision to have roads and rice answer questions that need to be answered. the obama administration, a couple months before president obama's reelection that involved secretary clinton. secretary clinton was involved in decision-making process as well, the us military was on standby, prepared to reinforce and told to stand down and that is what we need to get at and the judge mentions, why this may
get that why secretary clinton was avoiding a freedom of information act by using a private server. there is a lot of play here. i'm glad judicial watch is continuing to press for this. otherwise we would not having the information on this. >> are you expecting any bombshells out of this? >> if it were in person verbal deposition where they didn't have ten lawyers, that there might be something out of it. what i am seeing is carefully scripted answers that may lead to something. they are under oath and assuming they tell the truth, could lead to 120 days to have another hearing and could lead to
secretary clinton, having to answer deposition questions. rob: right before the reelection of president obama, a very critical time and you believe there was this thinking the obama administration didn't want there to be a threat of radical islamism in these areas, they didn't want people to think there was that threat. they had an agenda they were trying to push by hiding this and information that needed to be out. >> think of the backdrop in 2011, we pulled out of iraq, he says there's nothing to worry about and then the arab spring happens at the syrian civil war happens, isis is being created. it is artie determined they are cooking the books on isis intel that the president has said. he didn't want any intelligence to make it to the public domain
that was counter to his narrative so central command was not producing any products of record that demonstrated anything about isis so that was not consistent with his belief that there was no threat from radical islam so this is all part of the narrative the state department and others were supporting and he weapon eyes to these agencies to support his political power and agenda. jillian: thank you for your time. how about this? house majority leader steny hoyer says walls do work in some areas after all. >> they work some places. obviously they work some places. jillian: are democrat starting to break from their hard-line border stand? rob: congressman michael burgess joins us with that. ♪

great one, bret baer got him to say walls can work and do work and walls are immoral, nancy pelosi's right-hand man. what do you think? >> a breakthrough i guess. we have all been waiting to see when people are going to talk to each other about this. it has been a series of speeches and talking points to this time. i hope it is indicative there is now going to be a little bit of a loosening of the logjam. i didn't see the interview because i was in the rules committee trying to work and get the government open, but comments continue to be made, if you open the government for 30 days and let us work on this we will get to a conclusion but if i recall correctly the speaker and minority leader of the senate, the president said if i
allow things to open for 30 days we work with me? they said no. he said okay, goodbye and that was the end of that discussion. it needs to change and people need to talk, you can come to a compromise on this but it needs to happen sooner rather than later. jillian: we heard what steny hoyer said yesterday. we had congresswoman hill who comes from a law-enforcement family who says she believes in a border barrier and what's conversations to keep moving forward. do we see the domino effect in the democratic party? >> indicative of congress was supposed to be at home in a district work period that the speaker has canceled so congress will be in the house. we will be here working next weekend that is a good thing. we should not be not working with something so important is taking place. the story that came out of puerto rico with people taking a vacation on the beach, that hurt their narrative. perhaps there is a little bit of
frustration on the other side with how things have gone and the narrative that surrounds them. rob: two big reasons nancy pelosi has for turning down this idea of a barrier, that was a big moment. let's talk about something else the speaker did, asking the president to delay or cancel the state of the union or given it in writing and she makes a point they never had a state of the union when the government was shutdown but what do you think? >> the president needs to deliver the state of the union. the expectation that the american people have. i will admit having been on the other side, there's nothing quite like the majesty of coming in and addressing a joint session of congress with the joint chiefs of staff there and the diplomatic corps. it is a big deal and a big stage
for the president beyond. at the same time people want to hear from the president. it is a constitutional requirement the president from time to time comes and delivers remarks either in person or in writing on the state of the union. it is a requirement. jillian: do you see an issue with being delayed or in writing? >> it is unacceptable to say the president to deliver his remarks in writing. no one wants that. the president -- you see this over and over, democrats are anxious to do things, they don't want to normalize the presidency of donald trump but he is the president, he was elected, he needs to deliver the state of the union address. rob: they want to take the juice out of it, a great moment for the president. jillian: we are coming right back. how much horse power does this thing got? doing great dad! looking good babe!
